Marvin A. Doxtator

Marvin A. Doxtator, age 89, of Chilton, entered on “Doxtator Time” into the Gates of Heaven on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at the Chilton Care Center in Chilton. He was born May 12, 1925 in the Town of Brothertown, son of the late William & Ethel (Welch) Doxtator. Marvin married Phyllis A. Brueckner on June 26, 1954 at the little country church in Quinney. Through his life, Marvin worked as a mechanic at Horn Ford in Brillion before working at Central Garage in Potter. Since Marvin was such a perfectionist, he was known far and wide as a fabulous mechanic, but most specifically for his detailed and uncompromising work on transmissions. Marvin had many passions in life including spending time in his younger years on his Harley Davidson with his wife. His family was certainly another great love in his life. He enjoyed being a family man, constantly keeping a loving eye on all of his children’s activities and lives. As a father, he was always smiling and shared his great sense of humor whenever assisting his children with what they needed; he was truly a loving father and friend to each of his kids. Above all other things, Marvin’s greatest passion was his love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through his actions, he quietly lived his faith and daily preached the Gospel Message without ever having to open his mouth. He was a member of Faith Alliance Church in Chilton and the Stockbridge – Munsee branch of the Mohican Tribe. He is survived by his wife of 60 years: Phyllis; his children: Donna (Richard) Fluegge, Sheryl (Paul) Kobriger, Jack (Kathy) Doxtator, Colleen (Ken) Kurz, Rick Doxtator, Joan Doxtator, Scott Doxtator, Joel Doxtator; 16 grandchildren: Rob, Crystal, Craig, Chantae, Shaun, Brittney, Jerance, Stefanie, Melissa, Ken Jr., Seth, John, Amanda, Teresa, Nicole, Samantha; 21 great grandchildren; siblings: Billy, Anne & Danny Doxtator; and in-laws: Erwin, Kenneth, Clarence & Lowell Brueckner. He was preceded in death by his parents; a daughter-in-law: Angela Doxtator; a grandchild: Constance Cole; a sister: Marcella Putnam; and sisters-in-law: Ruth Averbeck & Jean Brueckner. Funeral service will be at 7:00 pm on Monday, October 6, 2014 at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Jim Jensen officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home from 4:00 pm until 6:45 pm on Monday, October 6, 2014. Marvin’s family would like to thank the entire staff of the Chilton Care Center for the kind, compassionate care that was given to him and the entire family, especially over the past week. – See more at:
